How to Create a Cabinet Display

You’d think my cupboard had a celebrity colorist considering all the colors it has been, which is  currently painted in Windy Sky. It has been in my former living area and son’s room, displayed children’s books, beach artifacts, linens and currently showcases kitchenware. But how do you master the art of a display?


An attention to the right pieces and color over clutter creates an effective vignette.

Thoughtful Displays of Affection:

  1. Consider the Space: With limited shelf space avoid cramming all of your favorite pieces. (I am so guilty of this). Be prepared to do an edit where some items may not make the cut. Simply stow them away in a clearly marked container and revisit to use again for when you entertain or want to rejig a theme.
  2. Scheming: In this vignette I picked items that have colors represented in the adjoining kitchen and living spaces. I added pink for pop, whimsy and it goes with the playful theme in our household as we are always experimenting with recipes and party ideas.
  3. Create Levels: Pick a variety of objects in different heights to fill in blank spaces. Pedestal plates, trays and the decorative boxes they were packed in are great accessories to stack pieces and add interest.
  4. Mix It Up: From modern basics to heirlooms, traditional and updated accents come together to make a personalized look. Dainty porcelain you thought was destined for your Great Aunt Polly’s 90th birthday need not be relegated to storage. Rose printed china looks cool against simple colored pieces.
